BMW Motorrad UK contracts Off Road Skills Limited to run the BMW Off Road Skills programme. World of BMW refers to the customer service team that manages bookings for events.

Bookings and payments

All bookings on Off Road Skills courses and events are to be made via the World of BMW freephone number 08000 131 282 or via https://booking.offroadskills.com and are on a first-come first-served basis. While every effort will be made to provide the motorcycle requested, Off Road Skills Ltd cannot guarantee the model of motorcycle used.

Payments are to be made by cheque or with the following cards only: VISA, VISA Electron, Mastercard, Solo, and UK Maestro. We are unable to accept any other cards. Customerʼs payments will be taken by World of BMW at the time of booking and processed by Off Road Skills Ltd within five working days of booking. The event fee will appear as Off Road Skills Limited on the customerʼs card statement.

World of BMW will send out an e mail confirmation to the customer after the booking and payment process is complete. The email will include a copy of these terms and conditions, a list of local accommodation and what to wear on the course. Further information will be sent to the customer by World of BMW one month in advance of the course.

Cancellation of booking by the customer

All requests for cancellations must be in writing and sent by either post or email. Upon receipt either of a letter or email requesting cancellation, World of BMW will acknowledge said cancellation within 5 days. Until the customer has received this confirmation the original booking remains valid.

The customer will be charged on the following basis:

29 or more days prior to the event start date – 20% administration/overheads fee. The relevant fees are:

Off Road Skills course – £99.00; Brecon Beacons Adventure – £113.80; Adventure Maintenance – £39.80.

Up to and including 28 days prior to the event start date – the fee is not refundable or transferable.

During the course, if a customer is unable to continue with training, for whatever reason, no refund of the course cost will be given.

Transfer of the booking by the customer

Requests for changes to bookings must be made in writing and sent by either post or email. On receipt of either a letter or email requesting a change, World of BMW will acknowledge any changes within 5 days.

Requests will only be considered if made 29 or more days prior to the course start date and will incur a fee.

World of BMW will notify the customer by phone, or via post, at least 14 days prior to the course start date.

Insurance

Customers are covered by third party road risk insurance ONLY while participating on a BMW Off Road Skills event. As with any other potentially dangerous pastime, you may wish to consider purchasing Personal Accident Insurance before attending the course. Note: Neither BMW Motorrad UK nor Off Road Skills provide Personal Accident Insurance policies.

Safety regulations

Customers accept that riding a motorcycle is a dangerous activity. Off-road motorcycle activities take place in varied natural environments where there are hazards and risks to manage. Every effort will be made by the Off Road Skills team to provide training in a safe manner. Customers participating in courses are expected to comply with all safety guidance and instructions given by Off Road Skills staff.

If, in an instructorʼs opinion, it is unsafe for a customer to continue on their current course, Off Road Skills reserves the right to move that customer to a different training group or bike appropriate to that customerʼs ability level. In the event of such a decision, Off Road Skills will not reimburse fees. Customers must be physically fit to take part on a BMW Off Road Skills activity.

Code of conduct

Your safety and enjoyment are our prime concerns while taking part in an Off Road Skills activity. The customer has a responsibility to mitigate the risks incurred. This means that you should wear all required safety equipment at all times. We ask that you respect yourself, other participants and staff on the course. Off Road Skills reserves the right to withdraw customers from the event who exhibit disruptive or dangerous behaviour that risks their own safety or the safety or enjoyment of other customers and/or staff. Any damage caused to property or equipment as a result of unruly behaviour will be charged to the customer.

General

  • Customers must be 21 years of age or above, hold a full and valid license (not provisional or restricted) for riding a motorcycle in the UK and have not been convicted within the last five years of any driving offence involving drink or drugs or that resulted in a driving disqualification.

 

  • It is mandatory that all UK resident customers bring the original plastic part of their licence to Registration for a BMW Off Road Skills event. Customers will be unable to participate without first presenting their full licence.

 

  • Customers who are not residents of the UK and wish to participate in a course or event must hold and bring with them a full and valid motorcycle driving licence, which is legally valid for riding a motorcycle in the UK.

 

  • All bookings are on the basis that the customer will, at all times, observe the safety regulations set by Off Road Skills Limited.

 

  • Customers booking a course agree to fully comply with the Off Road Skills Safety Regulations, Code of Conduct and any other instructions given by Off Road Skills staff. Failure to observe these rules may lead to exclusion from the course or event. Customers so excluded will not receive a refund.
